My friend uploaded a video of her son singing the alphabet. It has to be absolutely the cutest damn thing I have ever, ever seen. Go to it here: Gabriel Sings the Alphabet.
Oh yeah, knitting news…I am still working away on Saartje’s Booties. I have one pair finished, one pair that turned out WAAY larger than I expected because I used too big yarn (kind of a “no, duh” I know) that just needs buttons sewn on, and another pair halfway finished. Love those booties. You can find links to the pattern in previous posts.
Valentines Day. I have a sweet boyfriend. Our plans fell through. It wasn’t the most amazing Valentines Day on the face of the Earth, and I might have been a wee bit of a PMS headcase (did you know if you say I have a fat vagina I will cry. I mean no one did or anything, but it came up in a really weird conversation today) but I still have a sweet boyfriend and I am very lucky ..no, blessed.. to have him in my life.
Interesting side story. I went to a yarn shop in a near by town Saturday and went to use their restroom. The light wasn’t working, I tried it several times, looked at the woman working there who finally said “Oh, the light is broken or something” and I had to go in the dark. I came back out more than a little annoyed and asked why they just didn’t send someone to go get a light bulb, as the owner had forgotten to purchase one the day before. Instead, the owner (I’m presuming, forgive me) asked the knitting class if they wanted the bathroom to be closed or if they would rather pee in the dark. I left at this point, because the level of ridiculous was too high. With 2 people working, at least 6 people having a knitting group, and a store right down the street how was it no one thought to buy a bulb and replace it? The owner really should have been concerned for the safety of her patrons and her insurance, which would have skyrocketed if some knitter, peeing blind, had slipped and fallen and cracked their skulls in there. One more yarn shop I will probably not return to. Sigh.
